Latest review

First review round: 7.0 weeks. Overall rating: 2 (moderate). Outcome: Rejected.

The reviewers failed to recognize the fact that a new method of numerically deriving the exact probability of error for M-ary PSK in flat fading channels was proposed, besides a new channel independent precoder. The reviewers also claimed that the proposed channel independent precoder is very similar to the existing SC-OFDM. However, again the reviewers did not recognize that many of the results for the proposed channel independent precoder, were derived differently.
